The original Anomaly Warzone Earth made some significant waves when it turned the tower defense world upside-down. Well, backwards, really. Now the sequel, Anomaly 2 is ready to make the jump from PC to iOS this fall.
The new-and-improved intense “tower offense” gameplay is being crammed onto mobile devices; with a solo campaign, multiplayer, tactical view, shape-shifting war-mechs, and more. All that, plus some fantastic visuals. There’s no official word yet on a price, but there’s a good chance it’s going to be priced similarly to previous titles ($1.99 – $3.99).
Developer 11 Bit Studios announced a sequel to their hit tower offense game, Anomaly Warzone Earth, today. They also released a trailer, which you can see in its full glory below.
Months have passed since humans claimed victory in the battle of Tokyo and drove the alien invaders from Earth… or so we thought. Alien robots took their revenge and have answered that defeat with a massive assault on human armies in the Korean peninsula. This is where you, Commander, come into the action. Take control of the attacking response team, lead your armored squad against the destructive alien towers, plan your tactics carefully, and use special weapons and abilities to turn the tide of battle in this genre-defining strategy game experience.
There was something anomalous about the third generation iPad. It had that shiny new Retina Display, but Anomaly: Warzone Earth didn’t run at Retina resolution on there! Earth was ready to go to war over this cruel misdeed.
Well, fret no longer, earthlings! 11 bit Studios just released an update for Anomaly: Warzone Earth HD to make it compatible with the iPad Retina Display, thus correcting a situation that 11 bit Studios are quoted as saying is “not very good at all.” Yes, aliens can now be conspired against, and their towers properly offensed in stunning high resolution!
Now, one may think “So, the game has twice the resolution, that means the game’s going to be twice the price, right?” Wrong, rhetorical person! The game is now in fact much cheaper, as the price is now half off: $1.99 for the HD version which is universal, and $0.99 for the iPhone/iPod touch version. Did that version get anything new? No. Will saving an extra dollar fill that gaping hole caused by the lack of an iPad in one’s life? Possibly! The Retina Display update is available now.
Rubicon have kept their ears open and made a number of changes to Combat Monsters based on the feedback received from fans. The new update provides users with a revamped user interface, a new skeleton monster, asynchronous multiplayer, and new matchmaking that keeps the multiplayer battles fair with no need to pay to win.
